6:40 am
that michael bay shows us in these films. transformer, drk of the monday is not a great fill. it is a great experience. you walk into this movie, you turn your brain off and you enjoy the ask he has created for you. it dates back to the space race and a fictional story. we went to the moon because of an alien crash site landing n that alien crash, there was a -- we'll call it an artifact that got into the wrong hands and it could destroy earth. there are good and bad transformers. it gets into the hands of the bad transformers. it's generic plot line -- >> and convoluted even to hear you talk about it. >> it is very nerdy. all you have to know that is the autobots are on the good
6:41 am
guys and the action scenes take place. the 3-d, i absolutely despise 3- d. i have for the past two days. ever since gamed james cameron came out with avatar, everything has been in 3-d. what james cameron created was this depending of field experience where you feel like you are looking into the window the new world. what michael bay has done here is taken james cameron's technology for after tar, which in my opinion, all it was was dances with wolves, ferngully and pocohontas in 3-d. he has created more depth of field. there are these beautiful immersive scenes in chicago where transformers are coming down the street in the background. there are others in the foreground and you can see the weapons firing at them. there is this beautiful depth of field and you feel like you are looking at the streets of chicago. it is gorgeous. >> if you just want the action film, you know what you're getting into so don't be
6:42 am
expecting some plot line that is magnificent because you said there were some people that said they were not very impressed by it. >> you can't walk into this movie expecting an oscar film. you got to take your oscar glasses off. you won't have a plot line that is very cohesive and it is very convoluted at times. the action scenes, the last 60 minutes is one gigantic acting scene. it is very well done. beautifully orchestrated. go for the action. turn your brain off. i gave it a if you are out of five entertainment-wise. another cute one coming out, larry crowne. i like the cast in it. tom hanks and julia roberts are in it. >> tom hanks directed this movie. the a very smart, very safe, very witty movie. you are not going to go home and say that was a fantastic movie up feel good when you walk out. tom hank' character is fire from his job. he goes back it college.
6:43 am
he is fired because he has no college education and he ends up falling for his teacher played by jewel what roberts. nothing special here. -- played by jewel what roberts. nothing special here -- played by julia roberts. >> tom hanks and julia roberts have perfect chemistry. i would see it as a matinee or maybe other than a rental. it is a fun, witty movie but it is very safe, played it safe. >> all right. kevin mccarthy with 106.7 the fan. thank you for womaning in. >> follow me on twitter. and this monday morning on fox 5, can you check out my interviews with tyrese and patrick dempsey from transformers. >> we'll have kevin come in to answer our weather questions about how to get over jet lag when you fly around the world every week. >> i know. >> what's going on outside? >> yesterday, daytime highs

6:45 am
national. 61 in gaithersburg. 59degrees in frederick, dulles, manassas, 57 in martinsburg. couldn't ask if nicer weather. the 1st of july now. -- couldn't ask for nice are weather. annapolis, 71 degrees. here is satellite-radar. haven't had a lot to show you the last several days. got a few clouds out there at the moment. a mostly sunny day today. a few clouds will stream through from time to time t should be dry today. high pressure will keep us try here for another couple of days. we have warmer air off to the south and that will start to come in here later tomorrow. temperature back into the upper 80s but as we get into the weekend, here we go again. 88 later today. 68 your overfight low so temperatures will be up again overnight. 93 tomorrow with increasing humidity. steam bath by sunday being we're likely to have heat advisories with temperatures in the mid-90s.
6:46 am
might be a thunderstorm bringing us some relief late in the day on sunday and again on monday. this is kind of typical fare to washington for the first weekend of july. so we're used to it. nothing we can't handle. it is time for ask the weather guys. that is the incredibly interesting segment where tony perkins and i put our famously large heads together to answer your most pressing questions, weather-related or otherwise. we've got another video question submission today from the children at a beloved start day care. here is the question from shakira and amber. >> hi, fox 5. we and the children were wondering what to he do with all the courtroom drawings? >> they are asking what happens
6:47 am
with courtroom drawings? i'm not sure why -- why they're watching that much. >> perhaps this watching a little court tv. >> we have brought in none other than mr. bill hennessey, an expert. he has brought us images from some of the high profile cases in recent history. >> thank you for having me. i appreciate the question. >> we want to get to the bottom of it. what happens to the courtroom trawgz. >> i own the courtroom drawings. i have them going back about 30 years. i have abeen doing this for just about 30 years. and the television buys the right to air them. the ownership of the drawing remains with me. i have them. it is about 5,000 drawings i've estimated if you can believe it stored in my studio. some have been purchase-worthy. lawyer or someone who appreciates the subject matter has collected them so they've purchased the drawing outright. but otherwise, i have them.
6:48 am
>> you answered the question. the other question is do you get paid for your work. do you get paid from the people who air them or the attorney who purchase them. have you ever had any individuals who has wanted to buy your artwork. >> i have had several people purchase. it used to be a daily situation where i would go to a courtroom case. but it is less frequent anymore. but i'm hoping to take my experience, 0 years of being -- 0 years of, in a court, 30 years of working in television and take my career in other paths. i am still occasionally in the courtroom. >> a fascinating question. how long does it take to you draw the typical artist's sketch here? >> it all depends. it is dictated by the story, whether it is happening in an arraignment which will last minutes.
6:49 am
if at a trial, it is lasting all day. it is dictated by the news media and the crew out front. >> that answers the questions too. some of the qidz wantedded to know, if you draw in all of the cases. it just dictates whenever the news media is interested in. >> i am happily willing to draw in every case that there is. but i need someone who has asked me to go. >> president clinton here. >> this was clinton's grand jury testimony and that was done as an artist's conception because we want there for that one. that was something when the television can't get images. television is about images. so when they don't have a camera in there, then i provide that. >> let me ask you this. sarah and i have been fortunate to watch you in action in court over the years and it is amazing the detail that you can put out there in such a short amount of time. my question is throughout the length of the trial, how do you decide which scene to portray? >> it goes down to what type of
6:50 am
case is being covered. but when something happens in the court, it becomes evident that that is an amazing image and that is what you need to sketch. you go in with a certain expectation but you are always ready for something that develops unexpected. something that is part of the lawyer's plan to surprise us all with some piece of evidence or antic. >> now, bill was giving me a little background on how he got started. i think it is fascinating and i think college students should pay close attention. >> it is worth noting that i was actually in painting class. i was in my master's program over at au here in d.c. and the secretary came to the door and said there is a tv station, channel 5, wants to know if someone will go 0 years ago into a courtroom and draw. i jumped at it figuring there would be a bunch us and i was like the only one with my hand up. >> that was a pretty good move along time ago. >> it was a great move. and the rest is history, as
6:51 am
they say. thirty years of doing courtroom art since then. that was pretty remarkable. >> that is a better answer than just you had a lot of experience in court as a youngster. fortunately, that part is not true. >> so i got one pore question for you. has a defendant ever requested one of your drawings? >> more than one defendant has requested my drawings. usually i tell them why don't we talk after it is over because you may think differently. frequent will you, they end up getting convicted and they have other things on their mind. >> you don't want to frame that one. >> probably not. >> you brought in your book. we were fortunate to have bill here when you first put the book out. it is good to have you back again. if you get a chance it pick up the book, did he it, look through it, hopefully you get a chance to take it home too. do you have a favorite that you've drawn over the years. that is tough to call. >> i have a lot of memorable
6:52 am
